Hush Messenger IM service to close July 1, 2011

On July 1, 2011 we’ll be permanently closing the Hush Messenger instant messaging service.

In recent years we have not updated the Hush Messenger software to be fully compatible with the latest versions of Microsoft Windows and other platforms, and as a result usage has dropped substantially. We have decided that for the foreseeable future we will instead focus our efforts on completing and improving the new Hushmail. We apologize for any inconvenience this might cause.
